  1. Thank you for allowing me to shine on your beautiful blog.

  2. Here's the excerpt:

    There came a point when I came to realize that I could not be worried about what others would think, I could not worry about the effect that it would have on their mental or psychological well- being but it was more important for me to focus on me becoming whole again and helping someone else become whole too. My wholeness and purpose outweighed their comfort. So many times we as people get so caught up in other people’s feelings that we forget about our own feelings and we wind up crippling ourselves. We cripple ourselves mentally, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.
    The question that I began to ask myself now that I was in this conundrum is HOW DO I GET UP FROM THIS MESS?” My process to getting back to wholeness began with this premise and asking myself where will I be in 1 year if I took it one step at a time and began to work on me? I was bombarded with all these questions and I am going to take you on my journey and show you how I decided and got back from broken. When I decided to begin my journey I had to begin with where the battle originated from and that was in my mind. I had to start with a renewing of my mind and the way that I thought, spoke, acted and carried myself. The self- imprisonment that I had placed myself in had to be broken. You cannot begin to heal and get back from broken until you get to the core of where the brokenness began, most often that is in our minds.
    I had let others control me in the past without a second thought or even acknowledging the fact that they were in control of me. There were so many years wasted because of this. I didn’t know where to turn to or who to turn to which did not bold well for me because when one is in a state of brokenness we often cannot or do not think with a rational mind. We are distorted in many respects so therefore having someone to guide me out of the brokenness/darkness into the light/wholeness is what was missing.
    No one seemed to recognize the hurt and pain that I was feeling on the inside because on the outside I was wearing the mask that covered it up and from the outside looking in everything seemed to be just fine. My parents, who of course loved and adored me, were not even able to recognize what I was going through on the inside of me. My church family didn’t seem to take heed of what was going on with me either. The denomination that I was raised in Holiness, was a denomination that felt as if they were always right. You dare not touch or approach the Pastor/Man of God, unless he wanted you in his circle. It was fire and brimstone if you watched a movie with your family and women were jezebels for wearing make-up or jewelry. There seemed to be something wrong with the way that the church was operating because while the congregation seemed to be poor or not doing so well, the preacher’s pockets were getting fatter and fatter. This just didn’t make sense to me.
